    "I think this INDICTMENT overshoots the mark by a wide margin. I blame my inability to enjoy phone porn on my eye sight and erectile dysfunction. "

    My friend has this really lousy old cell phone...

    A very famous man, someone far smarter than you or me, once said "If it can be imagined, it can be done". So, of course you can weld Delrin to stainless steel....you just need to imagine better.

    Except if you talk to the people who work there, they'll tell you they also can't understand half of what they produce.

    I see both sides of the argument....I gotta tell you, a lot of schematics are unintelligible. The symbols used are often from different 'bibles' and more importantly, have no particular logic behind...

    I guess it's kinda implicit that the askhole will ask a bunch of people then go with the person who told him what he wanted to hear all along. I get that all the time....

    This really speaks of the basic human instinct to take the easy way out.

    I'm always asked for advice because I 'know how to fix stuff'.

    But I've come to understand people don't want to hear...

    My Grandaddy had a large shop with over 20 lathes including one of those. He used to tell everyone he was the last man alive who had run a Bradford. When I was about 12, I asked him what he thought...

    I thought the same thing but was 'hoping' he meant he had some sort of inverter like they use in my truck that allows a single phase 120v load to run off the truck battery. But, I am pretty sure my...

    You gotta hand it to Elon Musk for showing the world he could put a rocket, and people, into outer space using electricity instead of using fossil fuels and chemicals. I'd love to see the size of...

    That's why I asked originally what you are planing to do...if you told me you were under contract to make parts for NASA and you had to hold .00025" every time, I'd be on board. But I am guessing...

    .....I'm really not trying to be a dick but I was afraid you'd say that. There's just no way the leadscrew is gonna be accurate at the level you're talking about. That's one of the reason people...
  12. I'm not understanding....how are you measuring...

    I'm not understanding....how are you measuring the movement of the table aside from the DRO? How are you measuring 24" of movement?

    Late 70's, friend's father had a Yamaha TT500. I think it had a Basani pipe on it. I still remember the sound that thing made when he would drive it up and down the street through all 4 (5?) gears...
  14. I don't know what you are doing in terms of...

    I don't know what you are doing in terms of accuracy....no offense...but if you are using a Daitech DRO there is probably no real need to 'calibrate' it. It's not that super-duper of a device...
  15. The problem is not your skills....it's an issue...

    The problem is not your skills....it's an issue of the parts being 'onerous' to work with and/or impossible to get.

    A lot of stuff that's crimped together or friction welded etc. becomes very,...

    I don't know.

    I've always considered shocks to be a nightmare of un-fixability due to their fine finished bores, odd sizes, pressed parts, and one-way assembly methods.

    I am sure some higher...

    I bought OneCNC yesterday for the mill so I'll have to start learning it. Like a lot of others, I don't want anything that requires me to connect to the cloud or pay annual fees. If it's not as...

    The odds that the guy will ever produce anything worthy of contention are just about zero, anyway.

    NDA's are not too bad...but far worse are the Intellectual Property clauses they try to get you to sign. Like, "if you build Product X for us, we own all of the drawings needed to create it. We own...

    Neat, nice work, but wanking is wanking nonetheless.

    You first need to define what your goal is in all this....are you trying to impress customers, keep your nose clean, or actually produce better parts?
